Niagara Centre for the Arts

When I checked my email this morning I found an invitation to an “important joint federal and provincial announcement.” How could I resist? The announcement was that the Niagara Centre for the Arts has received $54 million dollars — $18 million from the City of St. Catharines and another $18 million each from the federal and provincial government. Very exciting news!!

The Niagara Centre for the Arts and Brock University’s Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts will be on the site of the old Canada Hair Cloth Building. This is such an interesting building and I’m looking forward to seeing the transformation take place over the coming years.

As I left the announcement today I took a minute to walk around the building with my camera. It is empty now, but will soon be a hub of construction activity.

And on the way back down St. Paul street I saw this amazing graffiti.
